Format: Paperback
"Peace and Conflict Studies" is deeply flawed. Its most obvious flaw is how it makes sentences too complex. It would turn "watch out for the cliff!" into "Be forewarned of the dangerous precipous before you." I had to reread nearly every sentence 3 times. It galls me. I have a masters in philosophy; I should not have to work that hard to read an *introduction* to anything, much less my wife's undergraduate textbook. (I like to read her textbooks sometimes)

Less immediately apparent is the book's one-sidedness. It is decidely left of center. "Peace and Conflict" rarely offers moderates' view, much less concervatives' ones, and disparages the few that are mentioned.

One chapter she did find sort of interesting was the second one, Concepts of Peace and Violence. Although the concepts were all left of center, it did point out that what Jeong calls structural violence (indirect, culture wide, behaviors that hurt people) can be as devastating in the long run as someone directly punching you.

Each chapter is broken into subheadings such as chapter 16's Realism and Neorealism, Functionalist, World Government, and Anarchism. The author argues that last one is a good thing "Anarchism rejects Hobbes' notion that a sovereign state is needed to protect individuals. Human beings work cooperatively, and an artificial order leads to exploitations. A state represses sucially conscious, caring human spirits and innate impulses." (p. 314) (this is part of one of Jeongs more understandable paragraphs.)

Here's a list of chapters:
1. Challenges for Peace
2. Concepts of Peace and Violence
3. Conflict Analysis
4. Peace Research
5. Understanding War
6. Sources of Social Conflict
7. Feminist Understandings of Violence
8.

In theory it would be an interesting book for a class--however it's really HARD to read. And I'm an AVID reader.
